    Can't ya toss it in the drying machine? (If you own one.)

    Container + whatever shizzles needed for stonewashing, wrapped in towels and such to muffle the noise, and toss it in the dryer. Sounds like it would work. I think another member did that. :)

    Another vote here for the Veleno Designs Quantum DD. Under $50 bucks including rechargeable cell and USB charger is pretty hard to beat for a light this nice. Mine is not on my keys but on a chain around my neck so i always have it on me even when keys are not on me (use it most to find my way to the bedroom without waking the wife LOL).

    Wow, I just scanned this whole thread and no mention of the McGizmo sapphire. Also muyshondt Mako only had a few mentions.

    Personally, I like the Quantum DD, Peak. Eiger 10180/10280, or the new DQG Spy or Fairy. Tiny, well made lights that work exceptionally well as backups, which IMHO a keychain light should be.

    I kinda went the other way. My keychain light is pretty much a full backup of my EDC. It's a 47 Mini 123 high CRI. It's backing up a D25C or a Logan so similar capacity overall. It's not as small as a Quantum etc but it's easy enough to carry.

    Mine is an urban beat. So, my keychain has a Fennix E01 with an Energizer Lithium AND a Photon Freedom in long life yellow. The Photon is my back-uplight, mounted backwards in its necklace holder, to prevent accidental "on". The Photon necklace is wrapped around it in a figure 8 pattern. This set- up has served me well for years.

    I edc 2 handheld lights, so my keychain light is a simple LED Lenser K2, I love it! Provides a reasonable amount of light the only down side is it uses those little watch batteries.

    Get the D2 now and the helix later if you are still interested at that pricepoint.

    [​IMG]

    or the XSTAR for a bit more than 1% of the Quantum's price.

    Or 4Sevens AAA 2 mode mule flood Atom Ti or Preon PO halfway in price between the XSTAR and Quantum

    @Ironside - All three of those lights are great choices for keychain carry and they all pretty much cover different price ranges.
